Default The Ultimate Quarter Toss

This video shows a guy toss 10 quarters into 10 different shot glasses in one throw.

WARNING: Although the video is clean, the site (consumptionjunction.com) is VERY NFBSK & NSFW

One question: How difficult is it to manipulate crappy motion pictures to show what he did?

After watching and re-watching, it looks real to me... and I agree with Towknie - NEVER make a bar bet with that guy!! WOW!!

I having a problem with the video in that when his hand hits the table the coins just appear a foot above the table. The coins also disappear on the way down to the glasses. Spinning coins should also flash in the light as they turn. This all maybe because of the poor video quality and bad lighting, but I suspect some editing.

His hand movement towards the edge of the table when he stands is also suspect. Looks like he's getting rid of the quarters to me, no other explanation for the movement IMO.
